Keep Your Statutes Outta my G-String!!!
I must admit that it is with some trepidation that I write this short entry. After kicking it around in my head for the last few months, I've got to come out against the whole "Six-foot Pole rule" as it applies to strip clubs being passed by the Ohio legislature.
My (true) conservative roots demand that I ask myself, "How does this affect me, or any other citizen's right to live their lives?" My answer has got to be that it doesn't. It doesn't matter to me if Susy Syphilis wants to shake her money maker for a bunch of dirty old men. It doesn't matter to me if Merv the Perv wants to hang out at strip bars and stuff his unemployment check into some meth-addict's G-string... it has nothing to do with me. It has nothing to do with you.
With all the problems that face Ohio, I can't possibly see any point in supporting legislation that regulates how close a dirty old man is allowed to come to a pair of fake boobies.

Liberal Twit Crossing...
Leaving the bank downtown this morning, I come to a cross walk with a clearly illuminated little "don't walk" hand shining at me from across the street. I stop at the corner, enjoying the beautiful morning. Within a few seconds, some hemp-laden Dennis Kucinich voter and his flip flop wearing hairy-legged girlfriend walk up on my right. Ms. Chewbacca stops to wait, only to be chastised by doper-boy: "That's just another sign they put up to control our movements! Think for yourself, they program you to obey, 'cmon!" and he pulls her by the arm into the street. (Dumb sheep that she is, she of course walks along with little, if any, resistance.)
Just as I'm barley containing myself from screaming, "No you effin' moron, I'm obeying the sign because I don't want to get run over by a car!" a delivery van turns left (one-way street to one-way street) and darn near decreases the Hillary '08 vote count by two. Ignorant hippie yells at the driver, "Watch where yer goin'!!" (Because not even walking against the signal and into the path of a moving truck can be the liberal's fault, I guess.)

Thank you, Dayton!
Voting down this tax raise, Dayton residents voted the right way this time:
Dayton CSD 15.17 Mil
Total Number of Precincts 173
Precincts Reporting 173 100.0 %
Total Votes 21034
Times Blank Voted 169
FOR THE TAX LEVY 8784 41.76%
AGAINST THE TAX LEVY 12250 58.24%
As David Bowman wrote on his Voice blog: distorting the data is no way to show an "improvement." Where I work, if the union members want a raise, they come to management and say, "Look at all the things we've done! Look how good out outcome has been!"
Percy Mack and the teachers union that hauls him around by the short hairs expected Dayton tax payers to give an abysmal school system an advance pay increase with a promise that the money would be used wisely. Sorry, Mr. Mack ... we've seen what you do with the money you have, why would we ever want to trust you with more?
Mack and the school board told us there would be deep cuts if this levy didn't pass -and they told us, "... those aren't scare tactics."
OK, Mr. Mack... time to pony up. Let's see those deep cuts.
